At least that way, you were absolved of the gift of lying; the one your bones were too light to lift and just couldn't take, by bestowing me with betrayal.More Like This
My mother would bring me an encouraging cup of tea in a giant pink mug instead of a cup and explain, "There are good days and there are bad days."

"Citizens of Panem," her voice rang out in a cheerful tone over the gathered crowds. "It is my pleasure to welcome you to the opening ceremonies of the Fourty-Fourth Hunger Games! Fourty-four beautiful and prosperous years since this beautiful nation was forged in blood and fire, and we are still going so strong - as every year, I trust this one will be better than the last. In the coming days, a brave young man and woman from each District will be selected to participate in this year's Games, and the welcome we prepare for them will be like no other."

Guide to Writing SummariesThis is to all of my fanfiction.net peeps, and to anyone who wants to learn how to write a quick, less-than-five sentences summary of their fanfiction or story.More Like This

You may not intend it, but this is the message you are sending to potential readers:
"I am not going to even try writing a summary because I am not confident at all in my writing abilities. I am a novice please give me a chance please please please!"
...No. Just no.
